WASHINGTON -- President Joe Biden's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has been compared with the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam. But in the wake of Thursday's suicide bombing at the Kabul airport, what we are seeing in Afghanistan is far worse than a repeat of Saigon, 1975; it is now a re…

The number of major employers – not merely companies but also government entities – now requiring workers to be vaccinated is skyrocketing following the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine. This means the door is closing on holdouts who have ignored scie…

As we look forward to the unveiling of the Marie Stuart Edwards statue on the library grounds I believe it’s important to realize that we have now two citizens of Peru worthy of celebration.

As calls for the Food and Drug Administration to fully approve COVID-19 vaccines grow louder, the agency itself has little to say. This is a mistake. The agency insists it is “working as quickly as possible” and has suggested that full approval may come for at least one vaccine by the end of…

The blight of industrial-scale old-growth logging in Alaska is about to end. And it couldn’t have happened soon enough. And, in fact, it didn’t happen soon enough.

Harvesting Capabilities has been around for many many years and most people know us because of the thrift store which helps us raise money to continue to put in ramps and medical equipment for those who can't afford it in Miami County. Many people remember us from building the all-inclusive …

The car guy in the White House would probably rather drive a classic Pontiac along El Malecon, Havana’s beautiful boulevard beside the sea, than to recalibrate a Cuba policy in the midst of crisis. This week’s historic demonstrations, however, have forced his hand. The president has to act.

Whatever one may think of Donald Trump or the circumstances of last year’s election or even the bitterness of this nation’s partisan divide, it ought to be easy to condemn the events of Jan. 6 and to support a broad inquiry into what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. Sadly…

President Donald Trump was rightly castigated when he said that libel laws should be changed to make it harder to criticize public figures. Trump’s suggestion wasn’t just self-serving; it smacked of hypocrisy coming from a man who made wild accusations about his critics and political opponents.

The Indiana Supreme Court is helping launch a full fledged assault on government transparency, and we need to push back and speak up in order to keep our democracy from falling into darkness.

After losing the presidency and the Senate thanks to Donald Trump’s disastrous management of COVID, Republicans look determined to try to ascend again in Washington by parroting his stolen election lies. If you can’t snap out of a slumber, it seems, the second best thing is to dive back into…

It would be a hard slog for President Joe Biden to persuade Congress to abolish the federal death penalty as he promised, but the least he could do is to stop enforcing it. To the contrary, his Department of Justice is picking up where President Donald Trump’s left off in pushing for the exe…

It’s not just mania about college hoops that puts the “madness” in March Madness. Think about the money behind NCAA basketball. John Calipari, coach of perennial powerhouse University of Kentucky, makes $8 million a year. Duke’s famed Mike Krzyzewski makes $7 million. Closer to home, Univers…

Many of President Joe Biden’s critics, and a few of his friends, feared he would not be able to handle the presidential press conference.

It wasn’t that long ago that people were clamoring for COVID-19 vaccines, with some going as far as lying about their age to secure the much-in-demand but not readily available shots – back when they were meted out by age, oldest first. Now the country is in a whole other, opposite dilemma w…

The future of democracy is in the hands of West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, alleged Democrat. His refusal to support his party’s main voting rights bill or help abolish the Senate filibuster could mark him in history, if anyone remains free to write it, as having dealt the decisive blow to re…

The Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol will be remembered as one of the darkest days in the country’s history, a day when democracy was threatened by its citizens. We cannot erase the events of that day, but we must do everything possible to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Indiana’s next two-year, $37 billion state budget accelerates opportunities for all Hoosiers – and in an unprecedented way. During the height of the worldwide pandemic, Indiana’s fiscal health proved its resiliency and our economic future is brighter than ever before. This legislative sessio…

The Biden administration’s decision to begin sharing U.S.-authorized COVID-19 vaccines with the rest of the world is welcome news. Now coronavirus czar Jeff Zients, who will lead U.S. efforts to fight the pandemic abroad, must swiftly craft a global vaccine strategy that’s as focused, ambiti…
